    when i try and run boot defrag I get this;

    Some registry entries were missing from the boot optimization section of the registry. (0x89000017)

    as far as i know all keys seem to be in place @ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg & HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Prefetcher

    all i've done is uninstalled perfectdisk recently.

    does anyone know what entries are missing?

    also the prefetcher folder is missing the layout.ini and my boot speed is slow.

    I ran the process idle tasks command but the process didn't start.

    Maybe try a repair install first. Could possibly save you a lot of time.

    naaa, not worried about re-installs anymore.

    It's like clockwork now, I have a checklist of stuff to reinstall and setup when all goes tits up. I also went portable on 90% of my apps so now I have less to do after a reinstall.

    Obviously your choice, but if the repair install works the rest of your installation is left untouched. No need to reinstall anything regardless of how short a time it takes.

    This thread is not updated for over 4 years, if you hadn't bumped it, no-one ever would have seen it anymore ;)
